The Panamonte Inn & Spa in Boquete is Panama’s ONLY registered member of the prestigious and exclusive Small Luxury Hotels of the World. There is a good reason for this: The Panamonte Inn & Spa is a European style hotel where the ambience is elegant but unpretentious, the service is impeccable and personal, the accommodations are tasteful and comfortable, and the dining experience ranges from simply very good to fantastic.
Since 1914, The Panamonte Inn & Spa has been the Boquete bed and breakfast hotel of choice for travelers from near and far. In the early part of the century, getting to Boquete was an adventure trek in its own right, involving ox carts, small rail trains, and horse drawn carriages. Today, national and international flights into David (approximately 45 minutes away from Boquete) and modern highways make the trip quick and easy.
The Collins-Elliot family, for more than 50 years, has blended their Old World Swedish traditions with the friendliness of Panama, in Boquete’s extraordinary setting of natural beauty. They have created a destination luxury hotel that has become a tradition for many. Families from Panama City, the United States and Europe have been coming to The Panamonte for three generations to celebrate weddings, honeymoons, christenings, and family reunions—sometimes booking all of the hotels 25 rooms to accommodate their guests.
